Mexican Dark Chocolate Biscotti
We love biscotti with our morning coffee. Easy to bake and they store well in an air-tight container.
- Ready In:
- 1hr 15mins
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 cup butter (softened)
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 tablespoons milk
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
- In a stand mixer. beat butter and sugar until light. Add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla. In a separate bowl, add all dry ingredients and mix well. Remove bowl from mixer and with a spoon, add 1/2 of the flour mixture. Stir in milk and then add remaining flour mixture. Combine well.
- Turn dough out onto a floured board and form it into a ball. Halve it and form each half into a log approximately 12 inches long and 2 inches wide. Arrange logs on a buttered and floured baking sheet about 3 inches apart.
- Bake logs in the middle of the oven for 40 minutes or until they are firm all over and browned. Remove them from the oven, let cool a few minutes. On a cutting board, slice logs on a diagonal about 1/2 inch thick. Arrange slices back on baking sheet and bake them approximately 10 minutes on each side or until golden throughout. Cool biscotti to room temperature. Store in airtight containers in single layers between waxed paper for up to 2 weeks.

A rich, dark chocolate with just a hint of cinnamon, and the nice crispy texture of a biscotti - a very special treat with my afternoon Cuppachino. I found it easy to follow the directions as listed. I had a pan that I purchased for just this purpose so no need to roll and cut so I had no issue with the sticky dough. Next time I may use momaphet's idea a add some mini chocolate chips.

This have a nice chocolate and cinnamon flavor, I baked according to directions and thought they could have used a little more time to get crispier. I added chocolate chips because more chocolate is always better. My dough was also pretty sticky, damp so I added a little more cocoa.
